Outdoor Education Projects

After years of teaching photography and documentary storytelling, all over the world, with kids of all ages, one topic is clearly prominent: NATURE.  Whether kids live in dense cities or rural towns, the LOVE exploring  and making stories about nature.  

Our primary instructor for these projects is Scott, who is an Eagle Scout and certified in Wilderness First Aid.  Lindsay supports the projects and is a certified Wilderness First Responder.  Both Scott and Lindsay have spent countless nights under canvas and rely on their advanced outdoor skills as they homestead in Vermont through the summer months.
